Ever just take a 4/3rds system and leave the big DSLR guns at home?

Do what I do - take BOTH systems along for a couple of trips and watch the big DSLR sit unused the whole time. Pay attention to how much trouble and expense it is to travel with, and how much you do not want to bring it on sight seeing walks or outings. Especially with family or when shooting people.

I take my sony R1 and pentax K-x with kit lens, 50mm f1.2, 135mm f2.5, 10-17 fisheye and 28 mm lens regularly on my trips. R1 is even bigger than dSLRs.
I am very happy with this and do not think it is any hassle.

So what you post is your opinion and what i am posting is my opinion- they are not facts for everyone else.

After a couple of those trips, you will drop the pretense and just bring along the m4/3.

Unless, of course, you start to bring the m4/3 with XZ1 or LX5 or other terrific digicam..... and see how much the digicam gets used in preference to m4/3. Ok, not quite there yet, but almost.
